2 Male 4 Female

Bernard has discovered that his wife, Jacqueline, is having an affair with Robert

Being a reasonable businessman, Bernard gives Robert two options to compensate for the affair - either he will sleep with Robert's wife in order to keep things even, or he will have him killed

Robert chooses to let Bernard sleep with his wife

Scheming to woo her, Bernard arranges an evening meal with both couples present - much to the frustration of their overworked and underpaid maid, Marie-Louise

However, instead of bringing his wife to the dinner, Robert pays Barbara, a call girl, to pose as his wife for the evening

Meanwhile, Jacqueline doesn't know that Bernard has found out about her affair and is stunned to learn that their dinner guests are in fact her lover and - supposedly - his wife

The situation then becomes even more hilarious and confusing when Robert's actual wife, Juliette, turns up for dinner ...


Bernard Marcellin: businessman, late 40s

Jacqueline Marcellin: his wife, mid 30s

Marie-Louise: their maid, early 40s

Robert Regnier: Jacqueline's lover, about 30

Barbara: call girl, late 20s

Juliette Regnier: Robert's wife, about 30
